You know what they say—you never get a second chance to make a first impression. If you’re selling your home (or just trying to amaze the neighbors), making a good first impression is essential. Of course, the first thing people will notice is the exterior of your home.
Pay attention to these tips on how to make your home exterior more attractive:
Put on a fresh coat of paint
Fresh, vibrant paint is one of the first things buyers or visitors notice about your home. No matter how up-to-date your kitchen is and how spacious your layout, potential buyers will be put off by cracked, peeling paint.
Invest in good landscaping
Yes, landscaping means extra work, but it also translates into greater curb appeal and a higher market value for your home. Invest in some foundation shrubbery if you don’t already have it and add colorful flowers for extra points.
Pay attention to your entryway
The entry to your home is a key component of a first impression. Make sure yours is free of bric-a-brac and debris and that your front steps are in good repair. Consider painting your front door a contrasting color or adding a colorful wreath.
Replace the roof
A tidy, attractive roof with no loose or cracked shingles is one of the best ways to make your home look more attractive on first impression.
